A First Look at Preceptors in the Nexus: Interprofessional Learning IN Practice for Preceptors and Site Development

Sunday, August 18, 2019, 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Greenway C Room

Learning Objectives:

  1. Define the key concepts of interprofessional learning IN practice that create an optimal Interprofessional Clinical Learning Environment.
  2. Demonstrate skills for supporting interprofessional learners, including clinicians, students, and residents.
  3. Identify changes at your site to integrate interprofessional teamwork, including the learners, into your process of care.


This workshop is designed to provide an introduction to the key elements of the two-day 'Preceptors in the Nexus' workshop.  Interactive and fast-paced, participants will learn how to create a culture of interprofessional collaboration that aligns education and practice and optimizes the interprofessional clinical learning environment.  Knowing where to start is often the biggest hurdle to overcome, therefore the workshop will start with an overview of a variety of real-life approaches that have been taken to incorporate interprofessional teams of learners into clinical environments in a way that is value-added for the site, the learner and the preceptor. 

To be prepared for these new interprofessional teams of learners, preceptors will need new skills including how to debrief with an interprofessional team of learners.  Participants will learn debriefing skills they can incorporate into their own clinical sites.  The workshop will be interactive, practical, and include a hands-on activity. Participants will walk away with tested professional development approaches ready to be customized for their institutional needs.
